Mendakota Country Club is situated in the heart of Mendota Heights, nestled under the curve of the Mississippi River to the north and Rogers Lake to the south. The Club boasts easy accessibility to all parts of the Twin Cities, beautifully maintained grounds, and a lovely banquet hall.
If you’re interested in a Mendakota Country Club wedding, we’d like to share with you Anne and Will’s big day! The elegance of the Club complimented Anne and Will’s style and made for some truly timeless photographs.
Have a look!
Anne and her father together before the ceremony. We were so grateful to capture this particularly emotional moment.
Will seeing his bride for the first time!
Catching light and emotion through the beautifully detailed stained glass windows of St. Peter’s Church.
Anne and Will took a few minutes after the ceremony to catch their breath together and enjoy those first few moments of marriage. We love these sweet shots.
Hurrah! Anne follows family tradition with an extra excited chapel exit 🙂
Will and Anne showing off a perfectly executed dip – gorgeous! (If you’d like to learn the method to this move, check out our blog on how to dip!)
Then it was time for champagne in the trolley and a trip to the Clubhouse to start the party portion of their Mendakota Country Club wedding!
We snatched Anne and Will away to snap a few shots out in the greenery of the Club’s surrounding grounds – one of the perks of a Mendakota Country Club wedding is access to their maintained property, ponds, lakes, and fairway views.
There comes a time after every ceremony when the big moment is done and the awesome couples we work with realize – they did it! Now it’s just time to party!
Cutting loose at the reception!
And cutting the cake!
Their first dance under the Clubhouse’s beautiful chandeliers.
At the end of the night, we captured a quiet moment between Anne and Will in the lovely low light of the candles and chandeliers. Congratulations to the happy couple 🙂
